One of our favorites! This fantastic and unique hand colored print depicts a lion attacking a group of hunters riding an elephant in India. Rescued from a dis-bounded volume of The Naturalist's Library by Sir William Jardine, published in 1835. Jardine made natural history available to all levels of Victorian society by editing and issuing the hugely popular forty volumes of The Naturalist's Library (1833-1843). The work was published in Edinburgh by W. H. Lizars.
